it was super bougie but a ton of fun, and absolutely breathtaking. i can't decide if the draw of the wilderness for me personally is mostly the beauty, the simplicity, the escapism, or the combination of all of those things that we see as some kind of pure existence. but the draw is definitely more complex than chris mccandless, jon krakauer, or michael kimmel would tell you.

i want to take seasonal jobs across the hemispheres so that there is always twenty hours of daylight. i couldn't live in any of those towns during the eight months of winter, ten feet of snow, and two hours of daylight, but the summer would be lovely in a place like seward. after a couple days your body capitulates and decides to give you twice as much energy as a normal day deserves, and i made the best of it. walking looking reading thinking eating talking and believe me when I say: i fucked a mermaid.
